Gingrich, Romney, Santorum to make stops in Southwest Florida this week

The Florida Presidential Preference Primary is just a week away and the candidates are stumping through Southwest Florida in the next couple of days.

Newt Gingrich, who just captured the South Carolina primary, will be in the area at two stops today. Rick Santorum, the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, will make two stops in the next two days.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be at a Florida Housing Event in Lehigh Acres this afternoon, NBC-2 reported. There is no word whether Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tex, will make stops in Collier or Lee County this week.

Campaign offices for all candidates remind voters that stops are tentative and could change.
